Thanks for the explanation! Though I know both the old Mac OS and Unix 
very well, I have had my share of complications with Mac OS X.

The droplet looks like a shell batch file, so I suppose we could test  
SELF_WORKING_DIR and if not set guess the right value with something 

  pwd | awk -F / -- '{NF=NF-1; print $0}' | tr " " /

supposing that the droplet is in the objects subdirectory and we want 
the name of its parent?
